My Star Wars shadow series compressed into 15 seconds! These are shadows creating by 7 different materials propped onto wires. If you scroll down in my gallery, you'll notice an earlier series of shadow art inspired by kitchen utensils. It started with a spark of curiousity and then a lot of tweaks and experiments. As an artist/designer, I've learned to not be afraid of experimenting and failing; you'll get better at what you do with each step you take. Our responsibility as creators is to sit down and create again and again. May the force be with you! xx (Thanks to @neesign, Rachel Mui and Michael Mack for assisting me, @mrthickblackframes for shooting this and @mspianobell for the music!)
Artist Red Hong Yi brings your favorite sci-fi series to life in her collection at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center.
From feathers to cotton balls, Hong Yi utilizes unconventional materials in her modern art.
"I am an artist who creates art using everyday materials," Hong Yi explains on Facebook, "to transform our understanding of objects and image-making."
Hong Yi's Star Wars series is featured in the Anchorage Museum's exhibition, "The Art of Fandom."
Two weeks ago, I got to participate in my first museum exhibition! I was contacted by @anchoragemuseum in Alaska to be a part of th exhibition "The Art of Fandom", running now till mid-March 2018. The exhibition explores today's popular culture and I got to contribute to the Star Wars gallery via my light and shadow pieces. Artist @sebastian_masuda's colourful, playful pieces brighten up the space and artist Cliff Wright, who drew the covers for the original Harry Potter books, also has those original HP pieces exhibited. Here are some photos...check them out if you're in town! Special thanks to Mikey Mack for assisting me with this project!
The exhibition, which runs through mid-March, "explores today's popular culture," according to Hong Yi. "I got to contribute to the Star Wars gallery via my light and shadow pieces."
Her 7-piece collection includes a chocolaty Star Wars logo, feathered Chewbacca, computerized R2D2, cotton Storm Trooper, twiggy Yoda, denim Leia, and tin Darth Vader.
Check out the full series below!
The first of my Star Wars shadow art series! I'm posting 7 shadow art pieces created by casting one single light source onto objects made of different textures and materials. This one's made of chocolate cookies with rainbow sprinkles! Look out for next one in a few hours! #starwars #theforceawakens
